Cool. Website to order from?
Being a relocated English man, still have my UK Roots.
Might just be easier to get items in the mother country and bring them to the land of lessor spotted roo.

Sorry Rich If slightly off track.
In aid of helping a forum member I'm willing to sacrifice a bit of 'off roading' but don't let it happen again ;) LOL.

Here's a bespoke mod which I've been working on with the help of Ian @ performance creations.

No prizes for guessing correct, they are mud flaps specially designed to fit the MK4 R32. Having forked out a good chunk of funds on a full respray I wanted to protect my investment against stone chips. Marmite mod I know but a lot cheaper than a respray.

Love the wheel colour and the flaps. I've got a black mk5 and looking at going bronze on the wheels (bbs) leMans. Have been tempted to mud flap it rally slag style.

First update for 2019 where's the time gone?

Decided on a slight colour change on the wheels. Copper/bronze before...

Now in satin gold...

MOT time, she passed with no advisories and covered a mere 124 miles in a year (been too busy with work) ;)

Lastly, been chatting to fellow FI r32 owners who have suggested running colder plugs so will report back to see if that makes a noticeable difference in power or performance?

Aside from that the car is running sweet. Thanks for reading.
